Not quite finished...

Prisoner of these four walls
They will never go back home
Friends and family long departed
No goodbyes from those they’ve known

Peering at a waning past
No one cares to share
Pages fading in morning sun
As they doze in old armchair

Seeing faces they once danced with
In places now renamed
Smiling faces with waiting lips
Those kisses now unclaimed
